Looking for Care?

Last updated: September 27, 2023

At CVT, our mission is to help survivors of torture rebuild their lives. We work to do this in several ways.

Healing Care

CVT’s holistic approach to healing, which includes physical and psychological treatment, social service, and community connections, empowers survivors to rebuild their lives and overcome the trauma they have experienced.

But there are some kinds of care that CVT is not able to provide. We hope that these resources will provide that support.

In the U.S., CVT’s healing centers are located in Minnesota and Georgia. We also have centers in Ethiopia, Iraq, Jordan, Kenya and Uganda. In most locations, CVT extends mental health and rehabilitative care to individuals who survived state-sponsored torture outside the United States.
